Choir rehearsals suspended

Current medical advice is against gatherings involving singing, and we are still not planning to restart face to face rehearsals.

Christmas Events for Members

We will be holding a virtual Christmas party on Sunday 6 December at 7:45 p.m. via Zoom at the same time as our December concert would have begun. Members will be sent joining information ahead of the party.

Choir members and their immediate families have been invited to attend a virtual Celebration of Christmas on Sunday 20 December 2020 at 7:45 p.m., and members are encouraged to contribute their voices to an audio recording of The Shepherds' Farewell by Berlioz.


Ellie Pirie Scholarship

We are pleased to announce that the winner of the 2020-21 Ellie Pirie Scholarship is Eve Begg, currently in her first year of a Music degree at the University of Aberdeen. The Scholarship, established in memory of the Choir's accompanist from 1956 to 1988, funds lessons arranged through the North East of Scotland Music School, and Eve has already benefited by achieving a Distinction in Grade 8 Singing with a score of 142 out of 150.
